The Property

Smithy Farmhouse is a detached Grade II listed property in the centre of the picturesque village of Eccleston.  The 3-bed property has been completely refurbished to include a new gas central heating system, new carpeting and full decoration whilst still retaining many of its original period features.  In addition, all windows have been fitted with secondary glazing.  At the rear of the property is a courtyard area with plenty of off-road parking and there is a large, detached outbuilding which was the original blacksmith forge.  There is also a smaller range of outbuildings providing a useful utility room and outside WC.

To the ground floor, the attractive porch and front door leads into the hallway with generous reception rooms to either side with leaded windows to the front elevation – both reception rooms have newly installed wood flooring and fitted log burners.  At the rear of the property is a generous kitchen with original quarry tile flooring.  The newly fitted kitchen has a range of floor and wall units with space for appliances. 

To the first floor there are two generous bedrooms to the front elevation, both with decorative original fireplaces and one with built in storage and a smaller bedroom to the rear.  The bathroom comprises a white suite with bath with overhead shower, washbasin and wc.

Externally there is a large, detached outbuilding which was the original blacksmith’s forge; this provides a garage space and very generous storage.   There is also a smaller range of outbuildings offering a utility room with fitted units and space for appliances, along with a separate wc.  The large garden is generally to the rear and is mainly laid to lawn with established shrubs and borders.  There is a small front garden with a pedestrian gate to the road.
